Considering the amount of moving air that surrounds a zeppelin battle, gas rounds might not work that well. Also, afaik, gas rounds in the 1920s tend to be unpleasant compared to grape shot. The shit they used in WWI was really nasty.

Yeah, it was more of a slow and torturous death, or it just fucked up your nervous system something permanent and fierce.

In any event, you could technically use it.

However, once other ship captains heard about it, they'd be pretty likely to hunt you down and blow you out of the sky, and you'd be very unlikely to get any protection from Militia or Navy ships.

So, basically, if you want to gain a reputation that stands alongside those of the cruelist and most despised pirates, gas away!

Ack!!! Can't stand cliff hanger!!! What happened with the Helena boarding? What happened to the Tri -plane? Did Wolfram become a Commador? (spelling?) Did Mandrake win his Mai - Tai drink off with Crow?


I need to know!! This isn't the Lost Season Finale! I need my Questions answered!

Pirates from the Bonehammer boarded the Helena.

It docked back at the Redtail with the second-year Raven student.

No.

Mai Tais haven't been invented yet.


Less confused now?

Can someone please elaborate on exactly what went down after I left? Apparently we are heading back now? How many Zeps do we have? Any chance of finding new plane parts? Or new planes at all? Did the triplane guy get his family back, what happened to Micheal the little boy?

Probably.

Apparently so.

One. Unless you have a broader definition of "we," in which case you could say 3-4.

There's always a chance.

See above.

Yes he did.

He's still with you.


There. Now all your questions have been answered!



I'm such a jerk. Laughing Somebody get on here and explain what happened.

When you left your character docked back with us in the cloud razor. We shot some more pirate planes down as they shot at what appeared to be one of their own ships clearly running from them. The Bonehammer and Redtail emerged from the clouds with no damage on either ship and we later find out they were firing blanks at eachother.

Wolfram retruns to the ship and meets the officers on the bridge and the debate begins. He tells us the plan is to give the Cloud Razor back to the pirates in the Bonehammer and in exchange we will recieve aid in getting the Helina back from a now separate faction of pirates currently controlling it. The Helina is dead in the air thanks to Miko Mad but we have yet to take on the dangerous task of boarding. Many characters have problems trusting the word of pirates and wonder if it is another trick. Also there are concerns that the pirates will keep to their word, but continue plundering and we will have allowed this to go on.

Eventually we decide to trust them and board the Helina after they send a boarding crew on before us. We meet with their new captain and Gilliam recognizes him as someone he fought before or something. Gilliam asks for a piano as payback and I ask for plane parts, but nothing is immediately provided. (hopefully we get something for dueling season) I go to inspect the engines as the ex-pirates seem genuine enough and we get the Helina running under her own power again Very Happy Miko, still untrusting of the pirates, disables the cannons on the Cloud Razor and I keep some of its vital engine parts on my person until the last possible moments.

As we start heading back to Portsmouth we come across 2 zeps...the Morning Sun and a (fairly impressive looking if I remember right) all black zep that we find out is Raven House (old or current we aren't sure) We are told to report back to the school with them and the Redtail.

Next episode prediction: Hawk house comes back with a wrecked zep while the other houses have shiney new toys. We get mocked and beaten at first, but eventually our experiences and teamwork out-weigh expensive toys. That or we leave in a tug boat or something because Janitorial House beats us in duels. Only time will tell.



Probably left some stuff out. Ask if you are foggy. Me or someone else will fill in.

YES.


Oh, and the Raven zep wasn't impressively large - only an eight-gun if I remember, but it was very very fast.

Also, I'm reasonable sure it was the older Ravens in that one. The same year as the Hawks that were helping us out.

So in essence, the Redtail was in league with those pirates? Interesting, unless these were not pirates at all but all Academy employees testing us. Perhaps putting in at port, the Academy had already planted its agents, and had 5 seperate jobs for the houses and that we might have gotten the least messed up of all of them. I really can't believe that they were seperate groups of pirates since the Bonehammer was there at the inital taking of the Helena. Or maybe real Pirates beat the Academy's fake pirates to the punch.

Well now you're just being paranoid. Also, you need to read more closely. Laughing
